UNAVCO LiDAR and UAV - new geodetic imaging instrumentation available

Spencer Niebuhr

Dear Colleagues, 

We would like to bring to your attention a couple updates in UNAVCO geodetic imaging instrumentation.

UNAVCO has recently acquired a Riegl VZ-6000 terrestrial LiDAR scanner, adding to the pool of geodetic imaging instruments available for use. The VZ-6000 increases the range of UNAVCO LiDAR scanners up to 6000 meters. Additionally, the near infrared wavelength is well suited for glacier and snowfield data collection.

UNAVCO also provides Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) support to Earth science researchers in the UNAVCO community. We maintain a pool of small unmanned aerial vehicles (sUAV's), as well as supporting field equipment (e.g., GPS systems, ground control, and communications equipment), software, and staff trained in best practices for operation of these systems. UNAVCO field engineers are FAA certified for sUAV operation within the National Airspace. The combined expertise in GPS, TLS, Structure-from-Motion photogrammetry and UAS technology allows UNAVCO to support a wide range of geodetic imaging applications in Earth science research. If you’d like to learn more about how UNAVCO can use UAS to help with your fieldwork and data collection, see: <http://www.unavco.org/projects/project-support/uas-support/uas-support.html>

Please visit the Request Support page <https://med.unavco.org/newproject/supportform.aspx> for more information about UAS, High-precision GPS, remote power and communication systems, and LiDAR and other resources available to the UNAVCO community.
